One of Surrey’s most interesting festivals is the Vaisakhi Parade. The Indian and South Asian event celebrates the Punjabi New Year.

Surrey Vaisakhi Festival Celebrations

In 2023, the Surrey Vaisakhi Parade happens on Saturday, April 22nd. There are more turbans and women in beautiful Indian and other South Asian clothing on than in the entire Punjabi region of India and eastern Pakistan.

The parade route begins and finishes at 12885 85th Avenue, at Surrey’s Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple. From the temple the procession usually heads south along 128th Street, then west at the BC Hydro (Newton) Railway line, and then along 82nd Avenue. From there it heads south down 124th Street, west via 75th and 76th Avenues, and then back up 128th Street to the Temple.

The event begins at 9:30 am, with the procession finishing back at the Temple by around 4:00 pm or so.

If you’ve never been to a Vaisakhi Parade, you should go. Mark your calendar, or check out the Vaisakhi Parade in Surrey which takes place one week later most years.
